Critical reception[edit]

Country Standard Time reviewer John Johnson gave this album a mixed review, saying that it had mostly generic songwriting and production, but citing "I Can Sleep When I'm Dead" as a standout track.[1] Allmusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave it three stars out of five, calling it a "little slicker" than the duo's first album, and that it was "enjoyable" but did not offer substantial songs.[2] Geoffrey Himes of New Country gave it three stars out of five, calling the album's cover version of Poco's 1978 hit "Crazy Love" the best track on the album, and saying that the other strong songs were the ones that included shared lead vocals.[3] The album's title track includes a 1962 recording of their father, Johnny Wiggins, singing "Honeymoon with the Blues".[3]
